Having now lived here for twelve years I thought I knew every plant that grew here but this lacy looking rapidly growing vine growing in my Plumeria tree has me flummoxed. Any ideas?Thumb of 2012-08-11/Dutchlady1/c221ba Thumb of 2012-08-11/Dutchlady1/13a69e

I agree with chelle. And don't let it set seed - it will end up everywhere next year!! Rolling my eyes.

Hummingbirds love it!

Hetty: I agree, that definitely looks like a variety of Ipomoea quamoquilt (Cypress Vine). It readily reseeds so may need to be controlled so that it doesn't take over everything in sight.

Oh, that's it for sure! Sigh, wish it would take over here; I don't have much luck with it.
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.
